There are only 17 days left until the election. If we need any proof that elections have consequences, look no further than our national politics.

Reports from relief volunteers in Puerto Rico highlight the devastation of the hurricane. People have been left without access to food, drinking water, medical care and other basic necessities.

Congressman and union brother Donald Norcross understands that both college educations and apprenticeship programs play an important role in equipping young people with the skills and knowledge needed to build a successful career. Therefore, he is championing a bill that would allow 529 college savings plans to be used for trade schools as well.
Remember what happened last year when we thought we could simply coast to victory? Obviously, the story did not have a happy ending. But one thing was clear: all of us vowed never to let that happen again.
Election Day is less than a month away, and working families need to make their voice heard. Therefore, we need everyone to make sure they are registered to vote. The deadline to do so is Tuesday, October 17, 2017.
